Captain Vuyo Mere and  Ndumiso Mabena are both out suspended, while coach Cavin Johnson confirmed yesterday that Sibusiso Msomi and Bongi Ntuli are injured and did not travel with the squad to Cape Town.

Johnson, meanwhile is well aware of the threat posed by ABC Motsepe League side Steenberg, who have ex-top flight players like Marawaan Bantam and Terror Fanteni in their ranks.

“We know quite a bit, we had someone go and take a look at them, we don’t take anything for granted,” said Johnson.

“We know they have Bantam and Fanteni and I heard Mkhanyiseli Siwahla was there, though I don’t know if he is playing yet. They also have couple of Under-23 and Under-20 players, they wouldn’t be playing for the country if they were not good players.”
